This is something more than a movie; it's a testament - and re-creation - of rapture.

The Synopsis for Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010) 1080p
In 1994, a group of scientists discovered a cave in Southern France perfectly preserved for over 20,000 years and containing the earliest known human paintings. Knowing the cultural significance that the Chauvet Cave holds, the French government immediately cut-off all access to it, save a few archaeologists and paleontologists. But documentary filmmaker, Werner Herzog, has been given limited access, and now we get to go inside examining beautiful artwork created by our ancient ancestors around 32,000 years ago. He asks questions to various historians and scientists about what these humans would have been like and trying to build a bridge from the past to the present.

The cave artwork is stunning, almost incomprehensible. The 3-D filming of it added little, other than to give the viewer a different sense of seeing the artwork in situ. The silhouetting in some of the 3-D "talking head" shots is poorly rendered and appears gimmicky.
The narrative is shallow and mostly ponderous. Occasionally quasi-scientific/philosophical comments are tossed in to provide some thought as to the story (and origin) of who produced this breathtaking example of human creativity so many millennia ago. The postscript about the albino alligators left me scratching my head thinking "What the F-?"
The musical score, like the narration, tries to compete with the artwork and only adds distraction. I ended up watching it as a sort of visual meditation while trying to "tune out" the other distractions and look forward to viewing it on video at home with the sound turned off.
Herzog had an opportunity to take the viewer on an unparalleled experience, instead he left me feeling like Fitzcarraldo up a creek without a paddle.

The images of the 30 or 40-thousand-year-old drawings inside the Grotte Chauvet are absolutely stunning, spell-binding, wondrous. If you're the sort of person who is moved and amazed by this kind of thing, then this is truly your kind of thing! What mars the documentary are three elements: 1) an almost total lack of archaeological/anthropological explanation (and I don't count the pony-tailed ex-circus juggler-turned-archaeologist who barely seems to understand Herzog's ridiculous questions and does his best to respond but still ends up sounding like a French Milhouse Van Houten; 2) a musical soundtrack that is grating, repetitive, irritating, over-the-top, inappropriate, and just plain preposterous (flights of celestial choruses drone as the camera pans over the paintings on the cave walls); and 3) Herzog's inane, pretentious, Euro-trash narration, which comes in at about the intellectual level of a thoroughly stoned junior high student. Just wait for the last few minutes when you get to the part about the albino crocodiles and see if you don't hoot with laughter. The Chauvet Cave is extraordinary; Herzog is a farce.
